rom installer2

ROM and recovery flashers, a new tool from long-time site friend JRummy hit the Play store this weekend that you should consider checking out. It’s called ROM Installer, and it’s similar to the long-lost ROM Manager, but it has support and offers up the “most ROMs available in any app” along with 1-click recovery flashing of the latest recoveries. 

You are looking at an app that features the newest ROM builds from AOKP, CyanogenMod, Paranoid Android, MIUI, and others. You’ll also find the newest versions of TWRP, which will be updated on a regular basis. ClockworkMod Recoveries  in both Touch and regular are there as well.

The app offers ways to backup and restore, install .zip files, and receive notifications for OTA updates of ROMs and recoveries.

ROM Installer is free.

Here is the features list:

  •  Many ROMs and ZIPs to download for hundreds of devices
  • One click install of the latest TWRP, ClockworkMod and ClockworkMod Touch Recovery
  • Backup and restore your current ROM (nandroid)
  • Extract apps and data and manage current nandroid backups
  • Install ZIPs with the easy to use ROM Installer. Install many ZIPs at one time.
  • Get notifications and OTA updates for ROMs and recoveries
  • Navigate ROMs and files on the popular ROM hosting website, goo.im

    What if I have already purchased ROM Toolbox Pro from the same developer? Do they pull from the same pool of ROMs? Is Toolbox being abandoned?

  • Bigwavedave25

    JRummy is one solid dev. For sure.

  • Patrick Crumpler

    N4 and its nice to have the options. But this isn’t all you need. You still need a PC.

  • does it flash recovery to the Verizon S4 running the vruame7 update? I have it rooted but have been waiting to be able to install CyanogenMod ROM…….anyone know for sure?

    • Justin Frieberg

      No, Safestrap is the only known “recovery” for ME7 and it is still in beta.

  • OreoMan

    What, no Sapphire love for the GNex?

  • shamatuu

    Why do i have to pay to get more roms?. I thought it was all free.

    • AussieDood

      You’re paying for convenience.

  • Bruce Wayne

    I don’t get it. My rom toolbox pro already has all this.

  • hjr9890

    So im new to this and let please help me understand this. If I am rooted and bootloader unlocked, this will be able to make me switch between different roms?

    • MikeSaver

      I have the same question.

    • Steve B

      Yes, it simplifies the process for noobs. You’re better off combing through the forums at xda and rootz for your particular phone and learn a thing or two about what it is you’re doing. These all in one tools are great, but you really should know what you’re doing in case something fails.

      • Tim242

        ^^^THIS X 1000^^^

  • StuckOnVerizonForever

    Yeahhhh F U Verizon!

  • rthvk

    Already bought the Gold upgrade at the promo price; looking extremely promising!

    • PhoenixPath

      Same here. Looks like there isn’t much for the One yet, but sure that will change quickly.

      Looking forward to it.

  • Jroc869, Nexus-Life

    I know a lot of people love to rom their phone, but im just over it. Im perfectly happy with stock Android. I do wish this was around sooner though. Might have saved me a little bit of grief.

    • Miguel Angel Portela

      I can agree with this. Only with MIUI. It really is the perfect rom right out of the box. Tons of features both stock and enhanced and really fast (depending on the device anyway).

    • vanilla Android is King.

      • Zubair

        i call vanila android the 3rd class ios and 2nd class wp8. what sells more vanila android which is so ugly or skinned android

        • dude lay off the drugs. that doesnt even make sense.

          • Zubair

            use your mind, open it up dont be narrow minded

        • bholt6

          iOS is a joke. Go home Zubair, you’re drunk.

          • Zubair

            i wish i was drunk

        • LucidPixelation

          well, you can make android to look however you want so, game over ^^

    • ice2097

      I think a lot of people do it just to get a recent version of android running decently on their (older) phone

      • michael arazan

        Or get rid of the skinned overlay on android like TW, Sense, and what ever that thing LG uses

        • Zubair

          those ppl are ignorant they have no idea how to enjoy the beauty and features and of tw, sense, blur, etc. without touchwiz galaxy range is useless and without sense, or lg interface, g2 and htc one are useless.

          • e_droid

            I disagree. I’ll take a rooted, slimmed down version of TW over the bloated stock version any day.

          • bholt6

            You’re horribly wrong.

          • Zubair

            hmmmmm, you know better i guess….

          • bholt6

            One might say so. Its all preference. I have a One on PACman and enjoy it much more than Sense.

          • Zubair

            i was on PA, MIUI, and Purity in my Nexus 4, one rom every week in the last 3 months, before that every day a new rom

          • bholt6

            Um, congratulations!?!? I suppose that could be considered…excessive. But, like I said, it comes down to personal preference. If you like stock, good for you. If you want to switch ROMS everyday because you have nothing else to do, DO IT!

          • Steve B

            Nice troll

          • mustbepbs

            Uhh, CM 10.2 has more features for my DNA than Sense 4+/5 do. Easily. And the so called “features” you’re touting are nothing more than gimmicks. CM has actual USEFUL features.

          • Zubair

            really, can u rely on it for daily use? how many times do u have to restart your phone every day? how many different themes you have to use everyday to make cm look usable. CM is no different from stock it is just full of stolen features from sense, tw, blur and so on

          • mustbepbs

            I use it for my business every single day, that’s how much I rely on it. It’s very stable and I never have to restart the phone, and I’m on nightlies. I use no themes, just stock Android.

            Try harder.

          • That’s why people install custom ROM’s… To get the latest features while not having to deal with the bloat of TW

          • Zubair

            Touchwiz has great features and so all other skins of Android from manufacturers. they are full of bloatwares but extremely reliable and usable, easy to use and great looking. However stock android may be fast but it is ugly, un friendly and it is also full of bloatware such as all google craps like books movies music magazine etc.

          • Daistaar

            I have to agree. Touchwiz is not the prettiest thing in the world next to stock Android but it is insanely functional. I’ve actually come to appreciate quite a few things on the GS4 like the air gestures and smart screen. Sense from Gingerbread through ICS had the best widgets hands down in all of Android.

            I could do without carrier bloat however. Never seem to need any of it.

          • Zubair

            all the features in TW and other skins are really useful for heavy users and for ppl that rely on their phone to function when they need it to

          • hzd

            So what your saying is that googles stock android does not function well enough for Samsung / lg / HTC ? And the overlays are needed for a better user interface / experience ?

            They may well need the overlays but those overlays are slow and big phones down, and in doing so push the price of handsets up.

            The software on any android overlay is not worth the 200 to 300 dollars.

            Grab a nexus handset and have a flawless high end phone for half thprice and with the most usable space.

            Overlays are never Needed to “make” a phone, if android is enough for Google to make a phone and the others can’t they should drop android and see how well the do without it.

    • Ryan

      I think the problem with someone that’s been doing this awhile is having to root/unlock the phone, then install everything, and keep it up to date. It comes down to a lot of work to keep everything up to date and in line. I loved customizing my phone, but I am over it too. I bought the G2 and it’s not even stock, but the features that are not like stock are not deal breakers for me and I can live with it. I hate the fact that I have to do all the work to keep everything up to date. Backing it up, wiping, setting it back up again, and installing apps. It just gets annoying after a few years of this.

      • Zubair

        i just got my G2 after a painfull year of flashing, restoring backing up etc in my Nexus 4. i am begining to love my G2 from the moment i turned it on

        • KleenDroid

          Don’t know why you would be down voted for saying you like the G2.

          The G2 is a great phone.

          While I understand you are tired of flashing I would certainly Loki that thing while you still can. Never hurts to have options.

          Also there is nothing painful about flashing if you know what you are doing.

          • Zubair

            i have been flashing roms, since HTC Hero, then X10, Galaxy MINi, Galaxy S2, HTC One X, Xperia S and Nexus 4. Now i really am bored of flashing specially since Nexus 4 which has huge developer base and every day there was something new.

            now i just want to enjoy what comes out of the box and since G2 is top of its game in terms of signal stregth, usability and beauty, i dont see any reason to flash anything to it.

          • KleenDroid

            I hear ya. It is a really nice phone.

    • Hans Dirk Kwazneski

      I’m the same way, I used to be a crack flasher, but I’m just tired of it. I wish Peter Alfonso was still making the bugless beast ROMs, while they didn’t have all the newest and coolest features, they were stable as hell! 🙂

  • Ray Gray

    sounds good as long as it stays updated with the current version of each Rom

    • I believe the roms are simply added via the host website for each rom. I highly doubt JRummy has to add each rom to his own servers.

      • Ray Gray

        I’m aware of that I just hope it doesn’t die like Rom manager did a few years ago

        • JoshGroff

          And I hope it gets added back into rom toolbox like it was originally.

  • yo ma ma

    hmmmm… it might work if you don’t mind imaging over your current daily driver
